When it gets dark, gentlemen working in corporate offices with their wallets in the back pocket of their pants enter in the nearest strip club. For men, a strip club is an ideal place where their libido runs free and their eyes are feasted on the beauty of girls exposing their nice curves. Even though a part of the society judges their character and morals, but for strippers, this is their job. The job they love and enjoy. This job not only earns the livelihood for them, but it also keeps them physical fit and healthy. The dance moves that hypnotize men are actually a great form of exercise. If you are a girl seeing striping as your career, then you have to be aware of the two aspects of this profession – dancing and stripping. Without learning a good number of great and seductive moves for lap and pole dance, you cannot even appear for an audition. In this post, let’s shed light on the first aspect, dancing, especially on injuries.
While learning or practising pole dance tricks, the possibility of getting injured is never off beam. Even if you warm up and workout with the pole carefully the possibility of getting injured is always there. This post compiles common injuries associated with the pole dance.
- Muscle strain: This is an acute injury occurs when you stretch your muscle too far. Applying too much force while lifting a heavy object or pulling something forcefully can also cause muscle strain also known as pulled muscle. In pole dance, neck, arms and back muscles commonly fall the victim of this injury.
Symptoms: The common symptoms of this injury are:
- Sudden onset of pain
- Limited range of movement
- Stiffness and soreness
- Bruising or discolouration
- Muscle spasms
- A knotted-up feeling.
- Ligament or tendon strain: Tendon is the fibrous connective tissue which connects muscles to bones. Ligament is also a band of fibers which connects bones to each other. Tendon or ligament strain is a serious injury as it takes a longer time to heal. The time it takes to heal depends on the degree of the injury. The pace at which it heals also depends on the location of the injury and also on the movements of the injured area during recovery. It may take 4-6 weeks to heal.
Symptoms: A dancer suffering from this injury experiences following symptoms in the injured area:
Wrist injury: This is obviously a very common injury. In simple words, any discomfort in the wrist is a wrist injury.
Symptoms: If you notice any of the following symptoms, it is the wrist injury:

When symptoms get worst, immediately consult your doctor. Let him diagnose and treat. The risk of getting injured can be controlled by learning pole dance tricks under the guidance of an experienced instructor. If you want to be a stripper or a pole dancer, then it will be good for you to join a stripper education program or workshop.
